From wonderful WOMAD to the Cambridge Folk Festival. I had no idea what to expect as again it was my first time trading there. Saying that it has a great following and reputation so I had a very good feeling about it all. Arrived quite late into the evening and my set up was a lot smaller as I got in on a cancellation which was a single pitch and in the middle of a row so no side trading only front. I decided to leave the jewellery and sell only my shawls/wraps and clothing. New additions being my skirts/dresses and dungarees both of which I designed and had made by my fairtrade tailors in Pushkar. The colours and patterns of the clothes are so vibrant that I didn't need a big pitch. To be honest it was a welcome break from lifting heavy boxes and building a big shop. I decorated my table with the shawls and had two rails outside for my Harem trousers/jumpsuits, skirts/dresses and dungarees. I ended up selling out of most of my clothing range which was just amazing. The shawls were well loved too and I came home with just one bag full. Happy days!
The festival was fantastic! Great vibe and lovely chilled out folky folk. My neighbour traders were good fun and yearly regulars so we were well looked after. Prime location too as my stall was facing Stage 2 and I got to see all the acts. Rosie made two new best friends and played outside for four days! There were lots of crafts for the kids to do and Rosie tried her hand at both pottery and weaving. Loving the handmade festival decorations accumulating in the camper.
Hopefully I will be invited back next year.
We have been once again blessed with the weather...long may it continue.
Next up Lakefest...
